just in, new pictures coming into the fox news room showing the deadly plane crash in aspen, colorado. and look at this. this was not a small private plane, this was a larger-type jet. and we now know the person killed in the accident along with the pilot was the co-pilot. another person on board was severely injured and a third person had minor injuries. and now i'm told -- no, i want to correct that. the person killed was the co-pilot, the pilot has survived. seif early injured is what we are being told for the pilot. in any regard, tragedy witnessed by people inside of the aspen airport. they were on social media the moment this happened, even before first responders could reach this icy -- icy tarmac. look at that.
4:32 pm
the airport is closed at this hour. we'll continue to follow the developing story and bring you updates when we can. and i want to clarify, the person who perished was the co-pilot and two others on board injured, one critically. we'll update you when we can. and president obama going back to washington after two weeks in vacation on hawaii and expected to try to make some ground in his second term. but the middle east is commanding the world's attention. a resurgent al qaeda now on the offensive in iraq and you can't miss it, you can't turn away. it is happening. they've killed 34 soldiers and cillans today alone -- civilians today alone in fallujah. people are looking at president obama for a foreign policy of retreat which they say has left iraq's fledgling government vulnerable. the fox insiders join us. john le bootay, dog shown,
4:33 pm
formand bill clonton insider. we're having technical issues with the satellite shot but we'll bring him in as we can. this is a city we spent american lives and treasures securing. >> it is symbolic and critically important because it is the clearest sign yet that our democratic experiment that we worked so hard for and we gave so many lives to is falling apart in iraq as the sunni-shiite fighting continues. and harris, the sad thing is it is being replicated throughout the middle east. there isn't an american presence. >> john kerry came out today and said we are going to respond to this but you won't see u.s. combat troops in harm's way. what does that mean? >> that is from the guy that voted for the war before he voted against the war --
4:34 pm
>> i didn't know you would vote twice? >> you can. and like obama, they are on every side of everything in the middle east and the number one reason the middle east is in the flux that it is in is the united states is no longer seen as a stable something, where we stand by somebody. now if you stand by the egyptian military, the israeli government, the saudi royal family and if you stay with them, now you have somewhere to build from. instead, we sold out every one of them. the only thing this president believes in, president obama, is himself. he doesn't believe in any other governments or leaders and he's betrayed all of them and that is now coming home to roost. >> doug, how problematic commitly is this for president obama with critics saying it is his foreign policy that got us to this point. >> i think it is. while the american people don't want foreign entanglements, they don't want impotence either.
4:35 pm
when you look at turkey which we had not mentioned, or syria and lebanon, we look weak everywhere and what john is suggesting is absolutely the case. >> with the president now through john kerry, the secretary of state making a statement today, does that means it comes on to his scope as a priority. >> the thing with kerry and obama together is they have an agenda for the second term which is make as many deals as they can have. they want accomplishments, things to talk about other than obamacare, successes they think. and they think any deal is a success. but the syrian arms deal, not working out. the iranian arms deal, not working out. the afghan withdraw agreement, not working out. >> you know, it is interesting, republicans had to drag around the albatross of the iraq war for years and when it was over we were told we had victory there, right? does this mean this current president has lost the war that
4:36 pm
we formerly won? >> it is losing the war and the gop political battle and russia through vladimir putin and the chinese are ascended, the russians have succeeded in taking ukraine. there is conflict between japan and china over islands in the pacific. the asian allies we have are all nervous. the real question, harris, is where is the united states? >> can we pop up that map real quickly of iraq because i want to show everybody this. ramadi could be the next to fall. it is see the same kind of al qaeda build-up and brett hume said therlyer. >> the american people would not be happy with a continued american presence in iraq. american people are never happy with foreign interventions. it is the job of a president as leader to bring people along about such things. we have stationed troops in places all over the world for
4:37 pm
decades and the net effect in most cases is they've helped to keep the peace. it is a role from which this president has shrunk. >> john, why didn't we people more people there and you are saying maybe to that? >> they couldn't reach an agreement on how many troops would stay and what their role would be and it is not the same as leaving troops in south korea or germany after those wars. this is not the same. this is leaving american soldiers on muslim tear tor dwri with a -- territory with a government that doesn't want to be seen as a puppet of the united states: and afghanistan too. so it is a different world. and let's face it. there is no thirst in america to stay in these places. people want to get out. brooem said he would get out -- obama said he would get out. bush entered an agreement to get out before obama got in there. the country have had enough of iraq. it is terrible to see. >> bolton was saying that both administrations have dealt with
4:38 pm
a way that got us to this point to some degree now this president has to make the decisions to go forward. >> he does. the problem, harris, is we have no strategy. there is no american view of the world to combat our enemies and those like putin who seek to dominate through coercive means. >> and doug, no fear of the united states. >> there is no fear of the united states. they don't think obama will do anything. >> where red lines get crossed and there is no consequences. >> this is not a president that has talked much about his foreign policy in his two terms. >> why would he. >> and the one time was the red line with syria and he backed away with that. and now iran and developing centrifuges because they found some fine print they can work with. but republicans want to come with a back-up plan for the sanctions. >> and democrats too want a back-up plan. that agreement has yet to be implemented. maybe this month will be implemented.
4:39 pm
and until it is implemented, it is not so they can do anything they want. ultimately, let's say january 15th they put that thing in. we have six months to make a lasting -- >> but john there are real problems with it. two hard-liners have gone on the committee and with the senate considering amendments and sanctions, it is not clear whether there will be implementation. iran is another example where our policy is being faced. >> let's check in how americans view this president. every sunday we do this at 1:00 p.m. eastern and we check the gallup poll and the president is sitting firmly at 53% disapproval. that is a huge negative. how does the president change this in the new year, real quick? >> it is tough. he will need to get something done on the debt ceiling, he will need to get immigration done, he's going to need to get something done that involves bipartisanship, bottom line, i
4:40 pm
don't think it will happen and i don't think he is going to be increase from the very low 40% level. >> i would add one other thing, doug. if the third quarter economic numbers, which were startlingly good, if they were to repeat themselves all throughout 2014, where there was over 4% growth, that should generate job growth and that will help him. >> but we're getting good news and his numbers are still close to record levels, john. >> when we come back, should nsa leeker edward snowden be granted clemency. i tweeted this out and you retreated me. fiery words from peter king on that very subject. he is lashing out at a fellow republican, kentucky senator rand paul who suggests leniency for edward snowden. here is a bit for each of them. >> i don't think we cannily apply the law. clapper did break the law and there is a prison sentence for that and so is there edward
4:41 pm
snowden. i don't think edward snowden deserves the death penalty. >> rand paul doesn't know what he is talking about and spreading fear among the american people and comparing general croppets to snowden. to me he's either totally unamerican or part of the crowd that left us in the 1960s. >> they don't mince their words. our political insiders are coming back. tell us what you think at harris faulkner #fn insiders. ion core™, it stops pain before it gets worse. nothing works faster. new fast acting advil. look for it in the white box.

he's clearly spilling secrets and in one country that we are barely civil with and somerd snowden is endangering american lives. but he has filled us in on how
4:45 pm
pourous our liberties are when it comes to privacy in this nation. so do you offer him a deal to come back home? john and dog and joining us by satellite, we've missed you, pat cad el, former pollster and fox news contributor. we've gotten our technical difficulties worked out. i want to get your view on edward snowden. i don't know if you saw before the commercial break, a lot of fiery words being bantied about. what is the right thing to do here? >> i think that this is kind of minor play. it depends on whether you are one of the listeners or being listened to is how people attitudes on snowden are. one of the things that it cost president obama, a lot of support among young people has been the entire nsa scandal and what has been revealed. and what happens to snowden is almost irrelevant to the fact that it plays into what i keep finding is a major fear in this country is the government has become the enemy of the people
4:46 pm
and therefore not to be trusted. and this is -- this has lent itself to that. and all of the attacks in washington, the truth of the matter is the american people have not been dealt with on the up and up and even the president's commission has said there needs to be reform. we all want to be safe, but none of us like to have big brother in our lives. >> doug? >> i must tell you, to me, snowden is a criminal. he betrayed his country, he betrayed his oath. but pat is right to say, this points out how the citizenry is basically being taken advantage of by our government being intruded upon and the image of us being weak overseas but intruding -- overreaching at home is a difficult pill for me to swallow. >> you know what is interesting, pat, that you said, is that an issue like this could color a group of people and their vision for this president, a group so important to getting him elected, young people. >> absolutely.
4:47 pm
and between obamacare but particularly it started with the nsa. a major constituency for the president, a group of supporting democrats has been shaken. now the republicans haven't been able to figure out where they stand. they are divided between the rand pauls and the peter kings. the real question is, if you want -- it is about big government. it is about the fear that they are reading and taking in everything and the problem is at a time when the american people don't trust washington and the way the government works, it is only exacerbating it and it has really affected young people greatly. >> you know what is interesting. this has gotten some response because i asked people to tweet us. john henline said, harris, it seems like the only people mad at snowden are the ones that got caught lying to the american people. that issue of trust is so huge, john. >> it is huge. and the fight we saw between senator paul and congressman king, and congressman king is

thinking of running for the republican nomination for the president, he is from the establishment of the gop and rand paul from the libertarian and that is emblematic of what is going on over snowden inside of the conservative movement. half of the conservatives think he is a whistleblower and the other half think he is a criminal. >> and i've heard this before, this wasn't be a campaign issue that people run on or don't run on. but when you talk about demographics and trying to get people to goo your way -- to go your way, if this gets people to open their eyes, do republicans have an opportunity now? >> they do have an opportunity. the real question is how do you tie in the concern that pat spoke of, about edward snowden with young people, to the larger sense of weakness around the world to craft a positive view of the u.s. role and what the appropriate security state should be. the republicans haven't done it,

4:50 pm
huge opportunity, they see a government that is corrupt, not for them, that rigs the system and most of us they see us not getting solutions, particularly on the economy where they think it is a two-track economy and the crony capitalism dominates. the alternate universe is a vast -- three quarters of the american people or more, looking for not just one person, but for an alternative politics and a potential movement exists unlike anything i've seen, and the question is whether the system can suppress all of this and i'm not sure it can. >> wow. i tell you, i want to continue the conservation with the political insiders and i bet you do too. here is your opportunity. on twitter at fn insiders or on our website, every monday at 10:30 a.m. eastern and their little fingers are tweeting away. when you get back to the green room, you'll have a lot to talk about. happy new year.
